London, Sep 27(ANI): England Twenty20 captain Stuart Broad has backed his batsmen to sort out their problems against quality spin bowling during their first match of the Super Eight stage against the West Indies in the ongoing Twenty20 World Cup at Kandy.England were humiliated by India in their second match of the group stage on Sunday, beating them by mammoth 91 runs, with spinners Harbhajan Singh and Piyush Chawla doing much of the damage.
West Indies boasts of quality spinners in Sunil Narine and the untested Samuel Badree, with part timers Chris Gayle and Marlon Samuels also constantly chipping in with valuable overs during the matches.
Broad is not surprised to be confronted by questions about his team's capacity to prevail against spinners outside England.
"The spin thing has been around for as long as I have. Every time an England team comes to the subcontinent, the spin question comes up," the Guardian quoted Broad, as saying.
"The most important thing is that the guys have their options and I know from training that they do - either a get-off-strike option or a boundary option," he added.
"We just didn't show it the other night [in "the blip" against India]. We put ourselves under extra pressure by losing some soft wickets in the first six overs and it was hard to get back in the game from there and we never found that formula," he said.
Broad added: "It's an individual thing to find the best way - whether it is a sweep or hitting it straight. You find your own way and I believe the guys can do that." (ANI)
